Four years ago..

you joined our family on August 1st and made us the two happiest people in the world. It was 7 years ago that doctors told me I may not be able to have children, and 5 1/2 years ago that they told me I should wait 5-10 years before trying to start a family. But it was 4 years ago that you came to this earth and blessed our lives. You were, and always will be, my miracle baby.



You are 3 feet, 5 inches and 35 pounds. You have big brown eyes and the cutest smile ever. You LOVE diggers and anything to do with construction. You are so sweet and good natured that it's hard to ever say No to you. You say the most sincere and sweet prayers and you constantly amaze me with your vocabulary. You tell me I'm beautiful several times a day, just because you know it makes me smile. :) You love to read books and ask me to read to you every chance you get. You are a wonderful big brother and are always looking out for Evie. You are sensitive and always concerned about how others are feeling. When we asked you what you wanted to do on your birthday (after many fun suggestions), you chose to spend the day mowing the lawn with Dad, "fixing" the sprinklers, sweeping the yard, etc. I think you are the sweetest boy in the whole world. We love you Dallin Keith. :) Happy 4th Birthday!!

Ha ha I totally got teary eyed too! Dallin is such a special boy. I miss him!!!!!! I'll never forget on my wedding day when he saw me crying (tears of joy) He got so concerned and from far away looked at me and somehow I heard (not sure how) but he said..."I love you Cari!" It was one of my favorite wedding memories! And on his 3rd birthday just a year ago! I love sensitive boys. so cute.

That was so sweet, and touched my heart! Happy Birthday Dallin! I was thinking about him on his birthday! It is hard to believe that our little men are already 4! Oh how the time flies! I'm glad he had such a great birthday doing the things he loves to do!
